Bryn Mawr students were praised at the Sept. 10 meeting of the Haverford Township Board of Commissioners for work they did researching the cost and benefits of the township using a geothermal heating system for its community center, which opened in June, reports the Delaware County Daily Times.

The decision to go with the geothermal system was based, in large part, on a report from students in Bryn Mawr Mathematics Professor Victor Donnay’s Math Modeling and Sustainability course.

While the system cost twice as much to install as conventional gas heat/direct expansion air conditioning, it is projected to save the township $50,000 annually in energy costs and reduce CO2 emissions by 211 metric tons.
